Manchester City vs QPR Premier League Season Finale Nets 600,000 Viewers On ESPN2

espn logo1 600x450 Manchester City vs QPR Premier League Season Finale Nets 600,000 Viewers On ESPN2

On the final day of the 2012-13 Premier League season, the incredible match between Manchester City and Queens Park Rangers on ESPN2 was viewed by a US audience of 600,000 people according to Nielsen.

The Sunday, May 13 broadcast between 9:30am-12:15pm ET scored a 0.5 household coverage rating, and was watched in 467,000 households by 600,000 viewers.

The live Premier League match was also shown live on ESPN Deportes, where the telecast had a 3.1 Hispanic households coverage rating, and was watched by 189,000 viewers.

The above numbers are very promising for ESPN considering that the games were shown on a Sunday morning (typically a quieter time of the week due to Americans going to church, etc). Plus, there were nine other Premier League matches shown live across several FOX TV and Internet properties. And many people may have been watching the game on ESPN3 instead of ESPN2.

TV ratings from the FOX properties have not yet been made available, but as soon as we hear from FOX, we’ll post them on this site.
